I think Up is one of the best love stories...I don't care if it IS a movie for kids. I never get tired of watching it:)


So, I don't really do New Year resolutions but something I'm working on getting better at this year is praying for other people. I love doing it, I just don't do it enough. I feel like we underestimate the power there is in goin to God on behalf of someone and really supporting them in that way. The enemy doesn't want us to support and encourage each other and help protect each other....there is a lot of power in that and we just let it sit everyday. For me, I hope I can be more consistent about it and I look forward to seeing how God will answer prayers in people's lives and getting to share in that.
SO....can you help me with this? Send me a prayer request or burden you have for yourself or someone close to you...and then keep me updated on how God is working in your life with that prayer request. Just comment, FB me, or email me (
Some of the things I'm praying for in my life is learning more about being controlled by the Holy Spirit, my daughter's growth spiritually and mentally, and what God has for me this Spring! (new volunteer opportunities, school, etc.) I'm sure I'll be updating you on what God does and how He answers these things in my life....1 Cor. 2:9

some of my fav pics of my girl this year

God's gift to me

Today sucs. It's just been one of those days. Haven't had one in awhile. Lots of obstacles at work. Lots of stuff goin on in my head personally. And then just those little annoying things where everything is going wrong...I spill or break everything I touch. I can't get anything to work. My daughter is in a bad mood...just one of those days. I want to be on an island alone, away from everyone and everything. But it doesn't work that way. So I just endure it, hoping tomorrow will be better........and then I look up from the couch tonight and here comes my girl, dressed like Cinderella, asking me to help her button her dress. Then she sits in my lap and we watch a Barbie movie and make fun of the dancing dogs. And that, my friends, is God's gentle reminder to me that I'm always goin to have those days on earth, I should long for Heaven ('our citizenship is in Heaven'), but also because of His kindness and grace, He has given me a gift (called KJ) that can make me smile everyday, no matter what is going on in my life. She never fails to make me happy, make me laugh, and give me hope even in my worst day, and my worst moods. He didn't have to bring her to me but He did. And that's what makes Him so amazing.
